Saudi Arabia's SWCC selects DuPont Sustainable Solutions to accelerate desalination improvements

SWCC is a Saudi Arabian government corporation responsible for the desalination of seawater-producing electric power and supplying various regions with desalinated water. It is responsible for about 70% of the total production of desalinated water in Saudi Arabia.

The collaboration will enhance the operational excellence and risk management processes at SWCC to ensure a sustainable water supply for the people of Saudi Arabia.

DSS and its partners will start at some of SWCC’s biggest facilities – plants, transmission lines and headquarters.

“We are excited to collaborate with SWCC and have invited strategic partners to support us in helping SWCC achieve its aspirations," reports Johan van der Westhuyzen, regional director for DSS – Turkey, Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa.

"Each partner will bring a unique set of best practices to ensure SWCC gets support from the world’s leaders in their respective fields: Emerson to bring experience in automation and reliability, Riventa to provide expertise in water transmission and pumps, and GrahamTek with best practices in core desalination processes and technology,”
